Lego pattern printables

There comes the day when all the puzzles available are done within seconds, they’re no longer a challenge. There also comes a day when it becomes clear that Duplo is no Technic. Because let’s face it: farms, trains, and cars made of 10 blocks are freaking boring.

Potty training regrets

Potty training regrets, learn from one’s mistakes. As parents we often read advice on how to potty train and what to do. Our grandparents share their wisdom and other parents share their experiences. From musical potties to reward charts, there is a wealth of ‘what to do’ resources out there, but how often can you…

Gorillas and hair straighteners

Untitled design(1)

Gorillas and hair straighteners have a lot more in common than you have ever thought. We were at my parents’. A cheerful winter evening. My 18 month old was toddling through the place happy to find new discoveries around every corner. Everyone was happy and in a good, play-with-the-kiddo mood.

Rules that make sense

I’m sitting on the plane with my family. I’ve just finished a sticker book with my 3 year old, and now it’s my husband’s turn to entertain her with some books about a creepy cat looking girl (or girly looking cat, don’t ask). Meanwhile, 2 rows in front of me, another 3 year old has been screaming her lungs out for the last 30 minutes.

Baby crying in the car

After around 6 weeks of life on this complex planet, my baby made things even more complicated by screaming her soul out whenever she sniffed the car seat. I sweat even thinking about that time. This is why I used to leave my suburban area only when I had to, and I mean – life or death situations.

Baby crying in the car? I've been there too, and am sharing the one thing that helped.

The Activity Mathbook

Have you noticed I’ve been in love with printables and e-books lately? I’m mastering my skills slowly and am really curious to see where this adventure can take me. I’m really super happy with the e-book I’m giving you today, it’s super simple, and very pretty, and it’s all about introducing toddlers to math.

The bath-time drama

There used to be the time when I dreaded the bath-time drama, or rather the hair washing bit. Nothing would help. The methods from baby swimming classes, that I had used since she was 3 month, would suddenly freak out my little Master of Stubbornness. No toy, no amount of foam, bubbles, or coloured water would calm her down. No-more-tears my ass.

The Activity Funbook printable

Activity Funbook printable

We’re all hungry, so the tension is rising. My husband is not great when it comes to preventing empty stomach from interfering with his mood, so how can I expect any “hanger” control from a 3 year old? The colouring pages are usually too boring, too complex, or too expensive to keep her happily occupied….

Tracing alphabet printable

Letter tracing printable

How did it come to me doing a tracing alphabet printable? Well, I have recently run out of ideas what to draw, paint, craft, and do with Z. We’ve been recently spending time outside a lot skiing, skating, playing, and exploring, so once we got stuck at home due to weather conditions and car problems,…

Stop the yelling, raise a badass

I haven’t met a parent who’d say she doesn’t mind yelling at her kids. I have never met a parent who could say he had never raised his voice. And while I don’t believe childhood is only about positive experiences, I know that as a parent I feel like utter crap after each yelling episode.

To limit my lost-self-control episodes I taught my daughter something, that additionally turned out to be a great confidence boost for her, teaches her about self-respect, and healthy relationships.
